    To me this song is about a person who is in a destructive relationship with someone, but loves them so much that they can't see the forest through the trees and doesn't see what kind of a person they really are. It is saying that this person is upset that the relationship needs to end, but at the same time is relieved that this burden is over.
    I just recently went through the same thing and this song has reminded me I can't go back to this person even if feelings start to resurface. I was so naive in thinking we were right for each other. I nearly lost my best friend over this. My advice for anyone who needs it or cares is never settle because you think you won't/can't the one for you. Never settle.
